    OOPS…

    5 Years / $5 million, $1 million signing bonus.

    . What were the terms of John Elway’s first NFL contract?

    It was unquestionably the greatest Broncos draft that never was. It featured arguably the greatest fourth round in NFL history. What year was the draft and, in order, name the players the Broncos selected in that fourth round?

    The first Broncos running back to rush for 100 yards by halftime was Floyd Little in a 1970 game at San Francisco. “The Franchise” had 117 yards on nine carries by intermission. Who was the second Broncos player to rush for 100 yards by half?

    In 1993, Howie Long played his last regular season game of his career against the Broncos and gave his game helmet to Elway, telling Elway that he was the toughest player he ever played against. Elway said this was his favorite "honor" he was ever given.
    I still remember watching Long talk on tv years ago saying "the Denver Broncos with John Elway will NEVER win the Super Bowl" HA!!! :clap:

    That's correct. Upchurch had 245(?) all-purpose yards in his very first NFL game which was then a record.
    Was this the game against the Chiefs in Denver where he had a solid blue helmet because his real one cracked?

    Milburn had 404 all purpose yards...and zero TDs. But it wasn't in his first NFL game.

    I'm not sure I said the question correctly but it's for their very first NFL game only.

    We have a winner! Check's in the email.

    The local Bronco TV show is running old Bronco news reels and today they aired highlights of the 73 season and Gene Washington had a play or two which made me think of this question.

    It was kind of like Brandon Marshall/Brandon Marshall but the two Gene's played the same position.
